Mystery of the cargo ships that sink when their cargo suddenly liquefies

Think of a dangerous cargo and toxic waste or explosives might come to mind. But granular cargoes such as crushed ore and mineral sands are responsible for the loss of numerous ships every year. On average, ten “solid bulk cargo” carriers have been lost at sea each year for the last decade.

Solid bulk cargoes – defined as granular materials loaded directly into a ship’s hold – can suddenly turn from a solid state into a liquid state, a process known as liquefaction. And this can be disastrous for any ship carrying them – and their crew.

In 2015, the 56,000-tonne bulk carrier Bulk Jupiter rapidly sunk around 300km south-west of Vietnam, with only one of its 19 crew surviving. This prompted warnings from the International Maritime Organisation about the possible liquefaction of the relatively new solid bulk cargo bauxite (an aluminium ore).

A lot is known about the physics of the liquefaction of granular materials from geotechnical and earthquake engineering. The vigorous shaking of the earth causes pressure in the ground water to increase to such a level that the soil “liquefies”. Yet despite our understanding of this phenomenon, and the guidelines in place to prevent it occurring, it is still causing ships to sink and taking their crew with them.

Wow! I've never heard of that happening to cargo ships damned.gif

It's really the most frightening effect of an earthquake that you could imagine.

Build baffles in these ships to prevent everything sloshing to one side, problem solved.

The extra weight would eat through the fuel and slow down the trip

I know a retired Noweigian ship captain who transported mostly things like chemicals, etc. If I see him tonight, I'll ask.

Could it be an electro-chemical reaction of carbs and lipids reacting to the radiations of the metals combined with salt water? Goerges Lakhovsky might have something to say about this only he passed away long ago. A regular Frankenstein reaction.

We're talking about solids that can turn into a state of being liquid-like.
Most of the comments above seem to reflect containing an actual liquid.
This is not the case or the physics associated with the dilemma.
Solids that are shaken into a liquid state become volatile and abrasive causing the containers to fail.
Because liquid always takes the shape of the container , no special container would support the harmonic resonance of the vibration to the granular solids.
Depending upon the actual material, my suggestion would be to flood special containers (holding the materials) with liquid nitrogen thereby freezing it's composition into something less susceptible to oceanic turbulence or vibration.
I'm not really a physics major, but I played one on TV.
LOL.

Verrrry interesting!...except it lacks a porn component. Oh wait...wrong thread! chuckle.gif

BTW, I won't be seeing Leif, the retired ship captain, tonight because we are in the path of that tropical storm/hurricane that's hitting LA, AL and FL. Better to stay home than to run into high water in a low spot.

The storm has bypassed us. I could have gone, darn it.
